Join us for a conversation about leading newsroom-product work and the value in developing a career bridging those two areas. You’ll hear from a diverse group of senior-level women representing local and national media, who have experience working alongside tech, business and newsroom peers in digital-first and legacy outlets.

Women’s Leadership Accelerator: Summer Series

The Women’s Leadership Accelerator is an intensive program that supercharges the leadership and management skills of women who are pushing digital innovation. Based on the feedback we’ve received from hundreds of women who have gone through our workshops, we’ve created four unique, online sessions aimed at women in digital media.

This series is designed for:

  • Women managing people or projects
  • Women looking to connect with other inspiring women
  • Newsroom leaders dedicated to empowering their female colleagues directly and indirectly
  • Anyone interested in leadership roles in newsrooms
